SCOD-Its the beards [In reply to] Can't Post

1.) What are your thoughts on the focus in this screencap? Obviously we're meant to be looking at Aragorn, but is there any special reason that Theoden and Co. slip in? How does it impact the visual?

It took a lot of convincing to move Theoden to decide to move his people to Helms Deep and again to come to the aid of Gondor.

Theoden's bodyguard would die for their king. their body language says it all, completely alert to their surroundings and aware of the safety of their king. I think Theoden's head should have been helmed for the journey just like his horse and two of his bodyguards.

Despite the absence of Eomer and the affection his niece has for Aragorn, I can't help but think that Theoden senses the burden placed upon Aragorn's shoulders and probably would want to offer advice as only an elder statesman could.

2.) How does this shot's framing reflect Aragorn and Theoden's relationship?

Do I detect a growing sense of trust developing between the two at the absence of Eomer and Aragorn may indeed remind Theoden in some small way of his own son Theodred.
